I recently got into hockey within the past 5 years. I have pretty thin bone structure and thin feet. My first skates were too wide. My ankles would bend and be stressed because my feet were off-center. It really was difficult to skate, but since I was just learning, I thought it was normal. I later got a pair of Nike's that ran thin and my skating was MUCH improved the minute I put them on. So yeah, width makes a huge difference.
